Letters for creation

Will you join us in writing letters for creation?

The climate crisis is one of the most critical issues of our time. And children and young people everywhere are showing real insight and leadership on this issue.

In 2018, the Archbishop of Canterbury encouraged senior church leaders in the Anglican Church to write ‘Letters for Creation’ explaining what caring for God’s creation means to them.

Inspired by this Christian Aid is calling on young people, up to the age of 30, to create their own ‘Letters for Creation’, which can be written letters or any type of multimedia presentation.

The ‘Letters’ should be on the theme of the beauty of God’s creation and the importance of climate justice?

We want to share children and young people’s reflections with the leaders of our world. The best of the ‘Letter for Creation’ will be turned into an exhibition that will be displayed at the Lambeth Conference, which is a large meeting of Anglican Bishops in July and at the UN Climate Conference in Glasgow in November. The exhibition will also tour churches and cathedrals across the UK and Ireland.

If you’d like your voice to be part of this exhibition then please get involved!

Schools can use the materials suggested in our ‘Letters for Creation’ pack to introduce pupils to the theme, and invite them to create a piece of writing, music, drama, or artwork on climate justice – to order the pack, please email vflanagan@christian-aid.org or download it from this page soon. Please email examples of your pupils’ work to: vflanagan@christian-aid.org or send by post to:
